    of course, I didn't say that the shippement is too slow . Shippements overseas take a lot of time.
    I'm just saying that I will share my opinion of the quality of the gauntlets.

    For the moment I can say that the services of Bloodsportstudios is very good, good communication, fast shipping , .... But I cannot talk about products, but I will

    Gee...that's kinda over the top don't you think? It's not like he said..."gauntlets STILL haven't arrived" All he said was that he would review the product once he received it. I would generally avoid smarting off to my eBay customers before Feedback is left. But that's just me.

    BSS, I believe Eskilax's use of the word 'commanded' didn't translate well in context. He meant that he 'won' the gauntlets on eBay. I don't think he was insinuating anything.

    Remember, English is not everyone's first languange on this board...

    Right, ... I just want to say that I won (and i'm really happy )...
    This is not a "french/English" post... but what's the meaning of "command" if it's not "purchase" or "won" ? (it seems to be a "false-friend" lol)

    command can mean to order(as in To purchase, exchange money for goods) or to order(as in Tell someone to do something now!) You should use the word "order" instead of command to avoid confusion

    I misunderstood "commanded" just sounded a little demanding just alittle difference of culture. lol no harm done, i learned something new myself, the next time i hear that phrase from a foreign customer ill look at it a little more light hearted lol. just that the forum kind of hit off on the wrong foot to begin with, and why i dont know, but if everyone observes my feedback on ebay everyone had really enjoyed my items, with no complaints, ive noticed the forum has a lot of critics, ill just say dont knock my stuff till youve tried it.

    It's all what you make of it. I've seen a set of BSS ROTJ stock greeblies and maybe they're not perfect casts, but they're darn close enough to work from to create a really awesome part out of a so-called entry level part. If you want "perfect," get the found parts. In no way a slam on BSS's work, but an imperfect kit is just an opportunity to show your skills. Learn the ways of the Xacto.

    I've just received my bracers by mail today.
    And I'm disappointed.

    What I got is not what is shown on the website.


    As you can see the down piece of the bracers are not moulded (sculpted), this is just a curved piece of plastic. Some pieces are so heavy that I think that the bracers will broke when I attach it.

    When I command the bracers, the picture that showed the 15 pieces was different, and show clearly that the down pieces are moulded... Now the picture has changed ( ) but the picture in the manual I get with gauntlets is the old one (if someone thinks I dreamed I can scan it)

    I'm happy that the picture on the website has changed (for next customers), if I had seen this picture before, I will not have ordered my gauntlets there.

    But I have to admit that the communication with Bloodsportstudios is very good and the shipment very fast.

    (this is MY advice ) a newbie of jango.

    Aww man.. but Bobafettgirl was his best reviewer

    I would think If you're gonna do something like that, at least get a friend to do it for you, no ? and well, maybe not seem so obvious about it too..

    That's one reason why this is my favorite forum.. Everyone's kept in check pretty good around here..

    Im just wandering why this guys shin tools are one sided?

    There is one other person on this board I know who made 1 sided shin tools. That person is a very respected board member, and I have spoke to him about this.

    1st off...

    He clearly uses pictures that AREN'T his, then only when its brought up, he changes it (EX: The CA boots suspiscions arose, the pics left his site, 2, the gaunlet braces arise, the pics leave).

    Its really hard for me to NOT point fingers when its pretty blatant that this guy is not only falsely advertising, but with the "poor casts" he sells and his Ultra Defensive attitude and sockpuppet accounts.

    Makes me wander if this guy has been buying up some RTV silicone and Resin in bulk quantities...

    A sock puppet account is an account controled by another user on the same board. The user is able to express hir or her views through the other account with out any reference to the actual user. Just like a sock puppet. (you know.. stick your hand in a sock and make it say funny things while moving your fingers) It's a dual identity thing...

    In this case BloodSportStudios had created another account under the alias Bobafettgirl and was giving reviews of his own products/goods.

    PS. There are no stupid questions on TDH.. only stupid answers. (i hope that this one doesn't fall into that category)
